Thyroid Awareness Month Blog Hop

Hi friends!
Welcome to the Thyroid Awareness Month Blog Hop
Preeti Datta (aka Dutt Preety) here. Thanks a lot for visiting my blog :)
 I'm very thankful for being part of this special event organized by the amazing Milka Gubo :)

January is Thyroid Awareness Month. The aim of this blog hop is to support Thyroid Awareness Month and to raise public awareness of the importance of a Thyroid Gland and problems it can cause when not working properly.

The extremely talented, Milka Gubo, is our host for this event. There are 26 designers from all over the world in this blog hop, which was from January 5th until January 30th. Each day one designer shared a handmade project on her blog. Today, 30th January, is my turn to share a project. You can find all the info. about the hop on Milka's Blog. (There are some giveaways on some of the blogs, so please do visit, comment on & follow the blogs in the blog hop list, to encourage & support the designers & the event.)

The thyroid gland is a butterfly-shaped endocrine gland that is located in the lower front of the neck. The thyroid’s job is to make thyroid hormones, which are secreted into the blood and then carried to every tissue in the body. Thyroid hormone helps the body use energy, stay warm and keep the brain, heart, muscles, and other organs working as they should. When this gland doesn't function properly, it can cause various symptoms and diseases, please click HERE to find more information about the same. If this gland isn't working properly, some symptoms one can experience are: fatigue, weight gain, depression, sentitivity to cold, muscle or joint aches, brain fog (including poor memory and poor concentration), non-refreshing sleep, brittle hair and nails, constipation, shortness of breath, thinning hair, PMS, significantly calloused heels, low libido and infertility. Thus, it is important to get regular medical check-ups done to ascertain if there are any issues present & be properly treated for the same

The theme of our blog hop is Thyroid. We will be sharing our handmade projects featuring butterfly, butterflies and/or blue paisley pattern. Thyroid looks like butterfly and blue paisley patterned ribbon is a new symbol of Thyroid Awareness month, so it was our choice to incorporate these elements in our handmade projects. I chose to feature a butterfly on my card. 

Butterfly Card


1. Die cut the watercolour paper panel using a Winnie & Walter die 
2. Created a loose watercolor background using Lindy's Gang Magical Shakers
3. Did background stamping to create some texture using a Visible Image Stamp & distress oxide
4. Die cut the butterfly and word using Cutplorations dies & white cardstock, adhered these die cuts to the panel using Tombow Multi glue
5. Embellished the card with a half pearl 
6. In the end, foam mounted the panel on an A2 sized white card base. 

Visible Image Stamp- Imagine Dream Inspire 
Distress Oxide Inkpad- Broken China
Winnie & Walter's Essentials Lana Cutaways
Cutplorations Dies- Flutter Zen 1 Layering dies and Hugs word die 


The hop will last 26 days. Each day one designer will share her handmade project on her blog at 9:00 PM CET (UTC +1).
